Hey,

Im Josh from Melbourne Austalia,
Lurked these forums on and off for a few years now and thought id finally make an account.

Here's my two current bikes -

CAAD12 - Essentially "finished" there is still a few small things i want to change
Frameset - 2018 CAAD12
Groupset - Ultegra R8000
Crankset - Cannondale SL Hollowgram
Cockpit - ZIPP 120 -17 Stem - 3T 40CM Ergo Bars - Fizik bartape
Saddle - Pro Stealth - Thomson Elite
Wheels - Handbuilt Tune Hubs > Open pros (1400g)
Pedals - 105
Chain + Cassette - Ultegra > Dura Ace 11-30
7.3KG With Cage, pedals and K-Edge mount

Synapse - Litteraly just got this and haven't changed anything yet so no point
in listing it all out - although there is a lot to change in the coming months for it.

Standard - 9.3KG (assuming its the wheels + sram apex affecting this and im expecting high to mid 7kg range when that stuff is replaced.)

Welcome, finally.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but for some reason I get the sense that you’re a Cannondale fan. :lol:

When will you ride one ‘dale over the other? One for racing and the other for club rides?

Hey Johnny,

So the plan is that the CAAD is for weekend rides under sort of 60KM and Crits then the Synapse is for commuting, long weekend rides and gravel fun.

Haha yeah, a bit of a cannondale fan - and sell them / work on them for a living.

I know I'm resurrecting a somewhat old thread ... bikes look great. How did you get the stem so low on the CAAD12? Are you using a Slam That Stem headset cover?
